Queen Greatest Video Hits Double DVD Details

Eagle Rock have released details about the upcoming release of the double DVD set from Queen, Greatest Video Hits.

The two DVD set will be released on August 28th and clocks in at over three hours long featuring 33 videos.

Upgraded digitally in DTS 5.1 Surround Sound, with added commentary from lead guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, this 2DVD set packages Queen's pioneering and groundbreaking video history into a seamless whole.

Heavy on the early days, the first disc spotlights Queen in the 1970s, when the music video as an art form began to emerge. It includes the iconic "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites The Dust," "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions," as well as "Flash," from the 1980 sci-fi film Flash Gordon. From the freezing backyard shoots of "We Will Rock You" and "Spread Your Wings," to the visual masterpiece that accompanies "Bohemian Rhapsody," Queen was already showing off the various ways that they visually wanted to represent their music.

The 1980 years are represented on Disc 2, from 1982's Hot Space album through 1989's The Miracle. With the advent of MTV in the US, Queen proved they could be as creative visually as they were on record. The '84 "Radio Ga Ga" video was hailed by both film and music critics alike for its referencing of the original 1927 cinematic milestone Metropolis by Fritz Lang. From the spoofing of Coronation Street in "I Want To Break Free," to children replacing the band members in "The Miracle," Queen put their stamp on the music video in the best way they knew how offering something fresh and different every time.

Queen burned so bright it created a legacy that continues today. From its self-titled 1973 debut to its fitting finale 1995's Made In Heaven, the band set precedents within rock music that will never be equaled. Singer/songwriter/pianist/guitarist Freddie Mercury (1946-1991), bassist John Deacon, May and Taylor meshed like magic and the results will be seen, heard and deeply felt on August 28.

Eagle Rock will also release the Freddie Mercury documentary The Great Pretender on DVD and Blu-ray September 25.
